Pair it with Parmigiani Fleurier’s Tonda PF Sport Chronograph, a cool arctic grey watch that exudes relaxation and can transition seamlessly from a day of sightseeing to balmy summer evenings.

If you’re a style enthusiast like me, you’ll find that mixing and matching summer apparel and accessories is where the fun truly begins. We’ve curated a list of looks to complete any summer travel capsule wardrobe—from the symbol of Italian excellence, the Loro Piana shirt, ideal for daytime wear, to chic evening outfits for a night out on the town.

Follow this outfit formula, and all that’s left for you to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy your vacation. We believe it’s possible to stay comfortable and stylish, no matter your travel plans. Whether you’re on a long flight or a short road trip, you deserve to feel as good as you look.
